Sales Highlights:

Jeep® started as a military brand 75 years ago and has gained an international reputation for offering authentic SUVs with class-leading capability, craftsmanship and versatility ever since. Jeep offers its customers an unmatched and unique emotional connection, which has helped propel it to a position as the number one-selling SUV brand in Canada.
 
In May 2014, the Jeep brand in Canada experienced its best sales month of all-time with 7,531 vehicles sold. Thus far in 2014, Jeep Wrangler is the best-selling compact SUV in Canada and Jeep Cherokee experienced its best sales month since arriving in Canada last November with 2,208 copies sold.
 
Since 2009, the Ram brand has had a dedicated workforce of engineers, designers, executives and manufacturing staff focused only on one thing: building the best Ram trucks possible. Their combined, nose-to-the-grindstone efforts have paid off with continuous sales growth. In Canada, May 2014 sales for both the overall Ram brand and the Ram pickup truck broke new ground, by setting an all-time sales record with 9,803 units sold by the brand, of which 9,074 were Ram pickup trucks. 
 
After 30 years on the market and with millions of Canadian families registered as past or present customers, the Windsor, Ontario-built Dodge Grand Caravan continues to be the best-selling minivan in the country. In May 2014, 5,987 Dodge Grand Caravans were sold, representing an increase of 16 per cent over May 2013 sales (5,168) and a new monthly sales record. In Canada, seven of every 10 minivans sold is either a Dodge Grand Caravan or its sister product, the Chrysler Town & Country. Chrysler understands its Canadian customers are drawn to minivans for a suite of reasons: innovative and flexible seating and storage solutions, 40-plus safety and security features, best-in-class towing and horsepower and, of course, appealing pricing and option packages.
